Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 3, Episode 4 - Mako Mermaids - full transcript

Cam discovers a series of five outcrops on Mako reef that look a lot like the placement of the symbols on the pedestal in the Merman Chamber. He and Erik investigate one of them, finding a symbol on an underwater rock. When Erik touches it, he is transported into en endless chamber of water with no hope of escape. Ondina becomes very upset when she finds out. The whole gang (minus Evie) set out to rescue Erik.

[Erik] That part of the reef
is so beautiful.

[Ondina] Mimmi, Sirena and I
swim there all the time. It's...

It's kind of special to us.

[Erik] I hope they don't mind
you taking me there.

Why would they mind?

You have told them about me,
haven't you?


I just... I haven't thought of a way
to make it sound okay.

Just say, "Erik and I like each other,
so we're together now."

Why complicate it?

Because it is complicated.

I do want to tell them.

That's a relief.

I just need to figure out how.

There you go.

One triple-choc-fudge milkshake
with extra ice cream.

Ah, just the way I like it. Thanks.

-What's with the map?
-Ah, it's not a map.

It's actually a nautical chart.

In fact, it's an app packed
with hundreds of nautical charts,

all fully interactive.

Wow. Stop the traffic.
That's really exciting stuff.

-Sure is.
-Seriously, I'm impressed.

I never knew that a boring old map
could be so...

Oh, what's the word?


I'll have you know this boring
old map is an investment in success.

I can zoom in anywhere
on the coast and have

real time tidal and weather reports,

-and a fish finder.
-Will wonders never cease?

I think I need to lie down,
I'm dizzy with excitement.

Oh, man, this just gets better and better.

[Sirena] So, what do you think?

[Mimmi] What?
[Sirena] My new hairstyle?

-It's for the gig tonight.
-It's pretty.

David wants to try a new
jazzy soul style for the set tonight,

and I need a new look
to go with the new music.

And a new dress, perhaps?

I like the way you think.

I'm off to the café.
I'll see what Evie has.


-[Mimmi] Where were you?

[Sirena] Why didn't you wake us?


I just needed to get away.

-I, uh...

I met up with Erik.

-Yeah, he was out there, too.

We had fun.

Without us?

There'll be other times.


Here, let me take that.

-You sure you're feeling okay?

I thought you might have been sick.

It is the third time
you've been late this week.

Uh, yeah, sorry about that.
I got sidetracked at the beach.

[David] Yeah, well,
try not to let it happen again.

Someone has to pick up your slack
and that someone is usually me.

-Hey, you got a sec?
-Uh, actually, I kind of don't.

I really think you're gonna
want to hear this.

Give me a three-word synopsis, Cam.
I've got to get this stuff inside.

Operation Merman Chamber.

So, here's the photo you took
in the merman chamber of the pedestal

and here's Mako Island.

Is that amazing
or is that amazing?

-I'm right, aren't I?

The pedestal's an aerial representation
of Mako and the reef.

-You're really onto something.
-That's not all.

These inlays around the pedestal,
see where they sit?

They correspond to the five major
rocky outcrops on the reef.

The fishing's always good there.

[Erik] Maybe there's more than
good fishing there.

My thoughts exactly.
I'm going to call Zac.

Why don't we check it out first?

I think Zac would want to know about this.

There's not a lot to tell him yet.

Let's see if there really is something
to your theory before...

wasting his time.

Makes sense, I guess.

Aren't you supposed to be working, Erik?

[hoarsely] Uh, actually,
I've come down kind of fluey.

Can you tell David?


Get well.

[Cam] We're right above the first outcrop.

What are we waiting for?

So, are you feeling good about my idea,
the jazz-soul thing?

Yeah, but I wanna make sure
I have the right look.

You look perfect no matter what you wear.

That's sweet, but not helpful.

I need a new dress.
Something that suits jazz and soul.

Hmm, let's see what we've got.



-This would look gorgeous on you.


Have you seen Cam or Erik?

-No, why?
-There's something going on there.

Like what?

Well, they were looking at this
new fishing app that Cam's got

and Erik seemed really excited about it.

And they left together.

Why would Erik care about a fishing app?

It's not quite what I'm after.

Too much jazz,
not enough soul.

Got anything else?

Let's see.

[Mimmi grinding]

[Mimmi] Are you okay?

Yeah, yeah, I'm fine.




what would the pod think
if Erik and I were...

seeing each other?

-Like friends.

Good friends.

You know the pod won't like that.
Mermen aren't their favorite people.

[sighs] I guess.

It'll be hard to tell them.

So, you and Erik are pretty serious?

I like him.

What do you think of him?

-I don't really know him that well.
-You'd really like him,

if you just spent
a bit more time with him.

I hardly spend time with you.


Well, we'll hang out.

-Yeah, the three of us.

[Evie sighs]

I should probably warn you, Sirena,
I'm running out of options.

-[Zac] That looks nice.

[Zac] What's wrong with nice?

-I'm aiming a lot higher than nice.

This calls for decisive action.

I have a friend in town who runs a shop.

She might have what you want.

Hey, Zac.
Have you seen Erik?

-[Ondina] He said he was working today.

Erik's gone!

-We were diving on the reef.

He touched a trident symbol
and he disappeared.

There's a trident symbol on the reef?

That's what I discovered.
The pedestal and the reef are connected.

Well, why didn't you tell me?

Erik thought we should
check it out first

in case it was
a false alarm.

Where is Erik?
People don't just disappear.

Remember the first time
you were in the chamber?

Then maybe we can bring him back.

-Like you brought me back.
-Let's get out there.

Hey, how do I get into the chamber?

I need you to wait on the reef
in case Erik reappears.

Come on!

I'll stay out here,
you go ahead.

Be careful!



-[Mimmi] He's not here.
-Then where is he?

[stammers] Stop.

Step there and you disappear, remember?

[Mimmi] What are you going to do?

What did you do to bring me back?

Nothing happened!

When you vanished,
you reappeared in the jungle.

Maybe Erik's there, too.

Let's go see.

This is it.
This is where I woke up.



Where is he?

I'll head back to the reef,
see if Cam and I can find anything.

[Ondina] Erik!


What if we never find him?

I'm sure we will.

This is the place.
The bommie to the left.

-Okay, let's go.

If you touch the symbol,
you might disappear, too.

-I'll be careful.
-You better be.

Thanks, man.

Did you see it light up?

Yeah, just like the pedestal.

Maybe that's what we're looking for.

How many other outcrops
are there on your map?

[Cam] Four.

Maybe it's some sort of code
to get Erik back.

There's only one way to find out.

If Cam's right about this, we could have
found the key to starting the chamber.

You really think starting up the chamber
is a good idea?

Isn't it better to know what it does
than not know?

Erik says if he and Zac can control it,
they can protect us.

That's what he says.

You don't trust Erik.


I want to know what Mimmi thinks.

Do you trust him?

-Why do you care what I think?
-You're my friend!

And that's why you've been spending
so much time with me lately?

[scoffs] I get it.
You're jealous.

This isn't about jealousy.

All along you've been saying
that mermen are the enemy,

and now you're all bothered
because one disappeared.

Your brother is a merman!

That is completely different.

You don't like Erik
and you never have.

[Sirena] Come on, you two.

We should be focusing
on getting Erik back.

I don't think Mimmi wants Erik back.

I didn't say that.

-Well, do you?

I don't want him hurt.

Good. That's settled then.

That is not the same thing!

What do you want me to say?
That I wish you had never met him?

-I don't think she wants that.
-Sounds like that to me.

Think what you like.

-I will.
-[Mimmi] Good.

Well, are we friends again?


-[footsteps approaching]

We didn't find him.

[Zac] But we did find something
pretty amazing.

-We need to go back to the chamber.
-[Mimmi] Is that really a good idea?

I mean, nothing good has come for us
from that place.

If it'll help us find Erik,
there's no question. Let's go.

[Ondina] What's the amazing discovery?

Okay, so there are
five symbols on the reef,

just like there are five inlays
on the pedestal.

How does that help us find Erik?

I think it's the activation sequence
for the chamber.

Somehow the chamber
made Erik disappear, so--

Activating it will bring him back.

[Zac] We know which symbol
goes with which point.

We just have to press them
in the right order.

Right to left.

I thought it was left to right.

[Zac] It's one or the other.

[Ondina] Wait.

What happens if you choose the wrong way?

We might all disappear.
Or lose Erik forever.

You realize if you do this,
there is no going back.

You will activate the chamber.

[sighs] I'm not gonna do it
if I don't know the order.

Do you know the order?

Mimmi, if you do,
tell us, please.

If I lose Erik,
I don't know what I'd do.

Just like I don't know what I'd do
if I lost you.

It's simple.

Mako and the moon
have always been connected.

The first symbol is the moon
rising over the water, moonrise.

Then the volcano representing this island.

Next, the full moon at its height.

Then this,

I think it's meant to represent
the moon pool seen from above.

And last, the trident symbol,
the place we're in right now.

This is the order.

Thank you, Mimmi.

You're welcome.

Without me, you wouldn't be here.

[Zac] Yeah.

Zac, do it.

[sighs sharply] Okay.

Here goes nothing.

[Zac] I think it's working.

Where's Erik?

It's not working!


[Ondina] Erik.

[Erik] What took you so long?

[Erik] I was so scared
I'd never get out of there.

But mostly...

I was scared I'd never see you again.

It's nice to hear you say that.

It's true.

I care about you more than anything.

You should've told me
where you were going today.

It was kind of
a spur of the moment decision.

But, you're right,
I should've told you.

Better still, take me with you.

You got it.

Now we know the code.
Next full moon, it's all gonna happen.

Who knew a fishing app
would solve the mystery of the chamber?

-Full credit to you, man.

I only did what anyone in my position
would've done...

and shared my astonishing insight
for the greater good.

So, why didn't you share them with me?

You're not gonna hold that
against me, are you?

I mean, next full moon,
what do you say?

Give me the tail I so richly deserve?

-Don't push it.
-[both laugh]

No harm in trying, though, right?

[Ondina] I like Sirena's dress.

[Mimmi] Yeah, it's gorgeous.

Thank you for today.

I know how difficult it was for you.

And I meant what I said in the chamber.

-Did you?
-Every word.

I won't let Erik get between us.

You'll always be my best friend.
